Great bird life
Lovely course, good greens, no hills
Lots of wild life, mainly birds, lots of water and reeds which does mean some lost balls.
Very tough in anything more than a breeze!
As the title suggests! For longer handicappers, as the 3 of us were, this is an enjoyable, but very tough challenge. Amongst the toughest of the pay and play courses down in this corner of s-e England.
The peninsula on which the course sits is reputed to have it's own wind factors, which other courses, locally, don't necessarily experience - that does seem to be the case!
In what was a strong-ish breeze, holes 12 through 15 were quite brutal and and there were some scores almost into double figures!
Water features large, on all but 4(?) of the holes, and the course designers like their little 'necks' of land which you have to negotiate on approaches to the greens.
Greens were of a mixed nature but generally good and quite quick.
Overall, a very enjoyable round in stunning surroundings.
Very well presented golf course and being updated , needs a little care with bunkers need weeding but overall a great place to play golf
First time playing Lydd
We decided to play this course as it was a very good price for a lunch time tee off. On arrival it wasn’t exactly clear where the club shop now is, having found a small barred window with the pro? sitting the other side we quickly paid and went to tee off.
The Course is pretty good shape with the fairways pretty dry which is fairly standard in this area at the moment. We found the layout of the course pretty easy and we’re lucky to play on a day with not to much wind meaning the 4 of us managed to complete the round in just over 3 1/2 hours with our group consisting of a 11, 19, 24 & 26 handicapper.
As with just about all Lynx courses fairway golf is vital as the rough is pretty unforgiving and with water in play on around 11 holes I can imagine a bad day could become pretty expensive.
I would recommend playing this course but as it is about an hours drive for me I probably wouldn’t unless down this way for other reasons
I have played at Lydd before its a good layout and a good test of golf with plenty of water
The biggest downside is the state of the Bunkers and the Greens
Bunkers with no or very little sand with weeds a plenty
And the Greens need some TLC Asap
Off course is good lovely club house very polite staff and nice food
All in all well worth a visit
Played this course previously around 20 years ago and had a good experience, so was exited to go back.
The course layout is very good and a decent challenge, however the tee boxes were just bare and chewed up, as were the majority of the fairways, very little sand in the bunkers which were also hard and compressed. The greens were the worst I have played on. It was sad to see . If given lots of TLC it could be an excellent course again.
1 star for Golf now. Course was fine
I'd written a long review of the course which was on here for a while now seems Golf now have removed it without informing me.
So i'm not wirting it out again, which is annoying as A. i spent the time to write one and you would expect it to stay put and B. the course was decent.
Buy hey looks like golf now are trying to annoy customers...strange business plan.
GolfNow taking the mick
Course is fine. Played there many times. But if I book a 2-ball on GolfNow then I want to play a 2-ball. That doesn’t give the right for GolfNow to book another 2-ball at the same tee-off time to make us play as a four-ball.
Stop it. If it continues I won’t book through GolfNow again.
Err. Yes it does. Read the T@Cs it's quite clear that this is the case.
Good course, fair greens, perfect weather. Shame GolfNow booked us as a 3 ball when I had confirmed a two ball. Apparently they are doing this a lot these days to fill their slots! I shall now delete my GolfNow account and never use them again.
The three of us enjoyed our day playing Lydd on a lovely day weather-wise.. I will look forward playing the course again...
Good test in the wind
Amazing value, excellent fairways and a real challenge in the wind. Very flexible about tee time upon arrival. Almost links golf at less than half the price of neighboring courses
Lovely Course, great wildlife, flat but with plenty of challenges including lots of water and bunkers.
Excellent value for money
